Sometimes you just need to relax, and where better to recoup and rejuvenate than in the comfort and luxury of a spa? Take a break from pounding the pavements, step away from all of the culture that’s surrounding you in Manchester and enjoy an afternoon of unwinding as you are preened and pampered in one of the many city-centre spas.
